One of the highlights of last year’s trip to the Fringe was Olaf Falafel’s There’s No I in Idiot show, so it was a no-brainer that we should see him again this year. Here’s Olaf Falafel Presents Knitting with Maracas at The Main Room @ Laughing Horse @ The Pear Tree, at 14:50 on Thursday 22nd. Here’s the blurb says: “Critically acclaimed idiot Olaf Falafel is back once again like a renegade master. If you’ve been to any of his previous shows, you’ll know exactly what to expect – inventive jokes and stupid comedic leftfieldery all held together with the flimsiest of narrative structures. ‘Absurdity so well-crafted that silly doesn’t do it justice’ (Evening Standard). ‘A wonderful hour of professional silliness’ (List). ‘A barrage of absurdist humour and sharp one-liners’ (EdFringeReview.com). ‘Olaf Falafel is an idiot, and wouldn’t have it any other way’ (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). ‘Refreshingly odd’ (iNews.co.uk).”
I know this is going to be a complete delight. Check back just after 4 pm to see just how entertaining he was. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.
As suspected, Mr Falafel is on top form again! Winner of the best joke award, although I thought the one about the prostate check was even funnier. Yes, of course, we got roped into the action, but it’s always terrific fun and incredibly good natured. A must see.
